Hi Michael,

I have a doubt in ur jdic browser.

If suppose an user uses a https://protocol to access a website ,it seems that some exchange of certificates takes place between the client browser and the server.

Is it true,coz i dont know about the certificates much.

If true,

where does the jdic browser store the certificate .

If the default browser handles it,then where does it store it.

Please give me an immediate solution

With Regards,
Ashwin Kumar.T

JDIC doesn't handle it.

Hi,
I think the best expert will be mozilla team members (they provide email alias, you can find from www.mozilla.org ). For IE, you have to ask Microsoft.

Note:I know https but not JDIC.

For https the certificates are just on the web server, not the browser. There is a "client authentication" option, where the browser needs a certificate, but it is hardly ever used.

If your URL is "https://..." then the browser will use SSL and the certificates from the server. If the native browser can get to the URL when you run it stand alone then JDIC should too since it is just running the native browser.

I dont know if JDIC can handle the pop up messages like "do you want to trust this certificate" that often come when visiting new https sites.

Regards,

Simon.

Thank you for the update!
JDIC doesn't handle the pop up message as far as I know.
